Most people will have either an iOS, Android or even a Windows Phone, their used to be another option called BlackBerry and now there is again, now surfacing from the dead with Android, so you have what looks like a BlackBerry offering but running Android.

At $899, it’s now the same price as the original and one of the cheapest flagship models around. All in all, this really is one of the very best phones you can buy. If typing is important to you it should be near the top of your list.

The BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition definitely looks prettier — in my opinion — than its silver sibling. Colour difference aside, the increase in RAM and double the storage is definitely worth the price difference between the two KEYone versions and easily retains its Top Pick of 2017 status here at Techaeris. Either way, you can’t really go wrong with either version.

For regular folks there are better options, however. The Snapdragon 625 CPU means the phone feels overpriced and doesn’t match the performance of cheaper handsets like the OnePlus 3T. I’m also not convinced younger buyers who’ve been raised on touchscreens will find the addition of a physical keyboard remotely helpful – even I struggled to use the keyboard initially, despite having used BlackBerry phones throughout most of my teenage years.
